Conveyancing Quality Scheme Toolkit: Practice Management Standards

Russell Hewitson, Sarah Dwight

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the quality standard for residential conveyancing practices. Accreditation under the scheme provides assurance to lenders, insurers, consumers and clients.

The Conveyancing Quality Scheme Toolkit helps residential conveyancing practices to understand, implement and maintain the CQS protocol, and to comply with the core practice management standards (CPMS) that must be followed by all practices within the scheme.

The fourth edition of the Toolkit has been fully revised and updated and aligns with:

the Conveyancing Protocol 2019
the latest CPMS, published in February 2022
the new mandatory procedure to ensure that applications are checked before being sent to HM Land Registry (7.4 CPMS)
the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017
the SRA Standards and Regulations 2019
the UK General Data Protection Regulation
Template policies and documents are also included for customisation.

This book is an indispensable addition to any conveyancing firm’s library.
